Election night has been full of surprises, almost like a big screen thriller crafted by Hollywood. Yet unfortunately for Democrats this election night tale is anything but fictional. The latest twist in the seemingly never-ending roller coaster is this: Hillary Clinton will not concede on Tuesday night, because the election is just too close to call for sure. So the question remains: When will Hillary concede? Update: Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, and Hillary Clinton has reportedly conceded to Donald Trump via phone. During Trump's victory speech he said: "I just received a call from secretary Clinton. She congratulated us — it's about us — on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard fought campaign. She fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her debt to our country. I mean that very sincerely."

Earlier: Well, we can't definitively say she will. The chairman of Clinton's campaign, John Podesta, said at Clinton's election night party: “Several states are too close to call so we’re not going to have anything more to say tonight. Your voices and your enthusiasm means so much to her and to Tim [Kaine] and to all of us. We are so proud of you. we are so proud of her. She’s done an amazing job and she’ s not done yet. Let’s get those votes counted and lets bring this home."

Even though Donald Trump has been elected president according to the AP, it's clear that if she does concede to Trump  — and that's a big if — it won’t come until her campaign is satisfied that every vote has been fairly counted.
